SILENCE OF THE HEART :
By- Robert Adams.
I would even recommend the book to
It's such a great and touching book, i actually thought that i am watching a great movie that depicts the multifaceted and unusual life of a great and obscure master!!
I simply don't know why some of the readers disliked this book, or what were their expectations(are they really real). Sri M in one of his latest interviews said that this is the very first book and not the latest one, he wrote many years back, but for some reason or the other couldn't muster up enough courage to send it to a publishing house.
Until now, when he finally sent it and the publishers instantly agreed to launch it in the market!!... From all this, he said, he learnt a lesson that 'never ever give up, come what may'. Please do yourself a favour and read it, forget spirituality or any other thing, just read and you will get addicted instantly!!.. stay blessed..
Only thing missing is a chapter with intense description of the Toddy Shop and its background as introducing it as an epic center and core of different dimensions of a typical village. Keralite readers can easily connect to where he planted the story background and the essessence characters but others may miss the spicy side of a Kallu Shap!!!
More than a Novel, it is a material for a grand intense movie and I am sure somebody will see that possibility and work on it. That way it will get into the mass media to enjoy a plot like this.
I personally think Shunya is a mix of himself and his great master Maheswar Nath Babaji and the plot is handpicked by him from his experience of incidents. Khader is a classic example of that!! Still he says it is a fiction, but somewhere he admitted that all fictions has a reality tint.
Really enjoyed his work and waiting for the Yogini in Jeans!
Here is a story of a person, who looks rugged, looks like a saint, or a lunatic or a mad person, who has infinite powers. He once comes across Sadasivan, a toddy shop owner, he is treated to some food by him, and Sadasivan realizes that his business did very well that day. He strongly believes that it is due to this saint like person that his business improved that day.
Next day, again Sadasivan gives him good hospitality and even offers him to stay at in a cottage behind the toddy shop. From that day, his fortune changes and changes for good.
Slowly and steadily people from all over the area come to know about this Saami, as he is called, and people witness miracles from this person.
The story is all about Shunya, his teachings, and message to the world that we are all here about nothing and for nothing. We do not need to be overly possessive about anything since nothing is ours. That is the beginning and end of peace.
The story is written in a simple language, the characters are realistic, the powers of Shunya though sometimes are doubtable, but it becomes believable with the flow. The story can be described as part mythological, part fantasy, but all in all a good and entertaining book to read.
The story is fast paced, with interesting twists and turns, making the reader intrigued by the moment.
A short read, but an entertaining read is all I can say about the book, and I do recommend to all those interested in fantasy fiction stories.
